    Hi Jade,

    Hope you're feeling better now! Yes, this does sound like anxiety (I've had these symptoms). 

    Have you sought any treatment/advice from your GP for anxiety? They can provide therapies which are useful. It would also be good to stop smoking (I know everyone says that and it's really difficult!) but smoking can cause problems with your heart and breathing, so it's better to be safe than sorry. 

    Feel better soon smile

    I have had chest pains on the left side and spoken to doctors. They have said of it's your heart you will rarely get pain on the left of your chest as your heart is central. What you may be experiencing is something called Precordial Catch. Look it up coz it may make some sense to you.

    Hope it helps
